We visited to take advantage of the Father's Day prime rib special and were so impressed by the service. The staff was so helpful and eager to help. Everything was excellent from our table being ready on time, calling to confirm our arrival to our departure.

Our aim is to bring the flavors of Peru and nikkei to the Rio Grande Valley, while providing a culinary experience that can't be found anywhere else. When you dine at MIKHUNA, you can expect Peruvian flavors that are exotic yet balanced. On our menu, you'll find indigenous Peruvian recipes, Japanese-influenced nikkei plates, and modern flavors you might encounter today in the streets of Lima.

About the restaurant
Overlooking North McAllen, TOLOA's rooftop space acts as a studio for creating social experiences around food and drink. A list of seasonally curated cocktails act as an accessory to the open-air patio and lounge from sunset to late night. The food offered focuses on Modern Mexican eatery and is designed to either be shared, provide a small bite, or be ordered as a multi-course dinner. TOLOA is a new way to indulge and be social.

Elegant aroma with a new view. Food was delicious but would classify the atmosphere as a bit more on the drinking side. Still an amazing experience definitely going back.

About the restaurant
Alfonso Salazar, better known as “Dirty Al” originally started shrimping as a young man with his father and 6 brothers. In 2003, he and his youngest son, Cameron, who graduated from Culinary School, transformed his bait stand into a restaurant where together they have been known for having “The World’s Best Fried Shrimp”! In 2005, his other two sons returned home to help grow the business. To this day, they now own 7 restaurants on beautiful South Padre Island and across the valley and continue to bring only the “best” Gulf Seafood to each customer’s table.
